GENTAFIX® 1 & 3
Surgical Bone Cement with Antibiotic
GENTAFIX® 1 is a high viscosity bone cement for manual application.
GENTAFIX® 3 is a low viscosity bone cement with an optimum fluidity for an easy application with syringe or injection gun.
GENTAFIX® 1&3 contain an antibiotic from aminoglycoside family (Gentamicin) well known for its broad spectrum of activity and its efficacy against most of the bacteria responsible of infection in orthopaedic surgery.
It comes in the form of an ampoule of sterile liquid monomer and a sachet of sterile polymer powder.
- Mechanical properties above ISO 5833 standard
- Low exothermicity in situ
- Low release of monomer
- Stable fixation of implants
- Suitable viscosity
- Long application time
- Optimal waiting time
GENTAFIX® bone cements are intended for use in cemented arthroplasty procedures.
- GENTAFIX® 1 is indicated for primary (shoulder, hip, knee) and revision (knee) surgeries.
- GENTAFIX® 3 is indicated for primary (hip) and revision (hip, knee) surgeries.
The maximum temperature reached during polymerisation of GENTAFIX® 1&3 cements is well below the requirements of standard ISO 5833, so significantly reducing the risks of bone necrosis.
The physical properties of GENTAFIX® 1&3 cement largely exceed the requirements of the ISO 5833 Standard, ensuring perfect long-term physical integrity.
